  • Un controlled spending.

    I like the concept but the ending was pointless to me. I would Have preffered an ending that doent involve her disappearing that would have been more to the point, Writting the check without asking her husband and being told if it bounces there would be severe penalties would have realistically stopped her from handing the check without asking her husband, since earlier he had refused to give her money she had to know he would cancel it since he would simply think its her, spending thier money, it was so obvious how could she not see it. A more perfect ending for me would have been her confessing to her husband about the card and the repossesion and see her become more desparate to win her family which would be more shocking to higher spenders and atleast show us what became of the husband and kids. My thoughts, maybe that is why I am not a writtermoreless
  • Credit card takes away instead of giving.

    What a great episode is this. First of all it is evil and mean. The ending is completely wicked. The ending is actually what fascinates me the most about this episode. But that's not all, when the children are taken away is also a very powerful moment that will make you sick, well, atleast it made me sick. This episode is a critic to people who can't control themselves and end up losing everything, although in this episode, literally everything was lost. Very good acting by the mother who shows a wide range of emotions, specially when she finds ut about her kids being taken away.

    A extremely good episode. I love itmoreless
